Patna, Apr 17 (UNI) Enthused with the success of speedy trials against the criminals, the Bihar government is now planning to book the corrupted officers by setting up special courts.

The government has announced stern action against those involved in corruption cases.

To take action against the criminals, the government went ahead with the speedy trials against them, including the hardcore political criminals.

Toeing the similar lines, the government was now contemplating for setting up special courts to hold speedy trails against the corrupt officers.

''Once the corrupt babus were behind the bars, it would send sufficient signals in the administrative circles setting up fair image of the government,'' Advocate General P K Shahi said here today adding that the blue print of the plan had been chalked out and would be placed before the Patna High Court very soon.

These courts would immediately dispose off the pending corruption cases by awarding sentences to the accused officers, he added.
